Bürkert is one of the world's leading manufacturers of measuring, controlling, and regulating systems for fluids and gases. Bürkert products are used in a wide range of industries and applications – including food and beverage processing, breweries and wineries, gas handling operations, water treatment facilities and pharmaceutical plants. Bürkert valves can be found in various medical equipment such as blood analyzers, dialysis machines and dental chairs.
Headquartered in Germany, Bürkert had been operating its first North American facility for 6 years, when we were first engaged to assist with their needs. Experiencing success and growth over that period brought with it the confidence to make a larger long-term commitment to the North American market, while also creating some challenges with their facility not meeting the immediate or long-term needs of the company.
We were able to develop and execute on the following two-part strategy:
Phase 1 - Immediate renewal and expansion
Phase 2 - HQ site selection and execution
